Sophisticated dining in Luxor. Formal dress code is a must (tie & suit) for gentlemen. Good variety of dishes. Very tasty. Professional & friendly staff.

Bring your formal attire and your appetite as you embark on a culinary trip from French to English to American and German foods. Some ingredients will look familiar to those who are used to European and American cuisine. Enjoy the food and the low prices.

No shorts etc You can enter without a tie but it is a nice place to dress up to go to. Also at the moment you may be the only people in the restaurant due to the lack of tourists in Luxor!
